Tennessee is located in the southeastern portion of the United States. Though some parts of the terrain are quite mountainous, the valleys and plains of Tennessee support major agriculture and textile manufacturing industries. An extensive network of railroads makes rail shipping one of the cheapest ways to move Tennessee freight. During the fall, outbound Tennessee freight shipping rates tend to increase significantly. The different industries make freight rates somewhat volatile, and the mountains and cold winters can serve to further increase prices. LTL freight shipping is most affordable in the population centers, and international airports make air shipping a possibility. In fact, Memphis is a major distribution hub for eCommerce.

Cost to Ship Freight to Tennessee
The time of year and what part of the country a shipment is picking up in will affect the cost of shipping to Tennessee. Part of a freight rate is the linehaul, and the farther a shipment has to travel, the more fuel is used, and the more expensive the trip will be for the carrier.
Among other factors affecting freight cost will be the item’s size, weight, density, and commodity being shipped. Certain commodities are given a higher freight class which correlates to a higher price to ship.
Freight shipping accessorials will factor into the pricing. Some examples include lift gate service, residential pick-up/deliveries, and limited access locations.
